The Library of my lamented Father was divided amongst my brothers — in — law, 
Dr. Adolph Kurrein, Chief Eabbi of Teplitz, Bohemia, Dr. Hartwig Hirschfeld, Professor 
of Arabic at Montefiore College, Eamsgate, and myself, the two former taking the oriental 
and theological works respectively, whilst I acquired the remainder. 

In producing the present Catalogue, I lay no claim whatever to literary merit or 
original research ; my object was simply to make the more intimate personal acquaintance 
of my books, to preserve them in proper order for the benelit of my children and friends, 
and thus gratefully perpetuate the name of my Father, in whose sense and spirit I feel 
I shall have acted if, by the help of my humble contributioa to Bibliography, I succeed 
in furthering, in however small a degree, the study of the life, language and literature of 
the Jew, as presented in the Bible, the only true basis of Religion and Education. 

James H. Loewe. 

5 Copthall Coui't. 
LONDON, E. C, 1. August 1895. 


|r. Louis Loewe was born at Ziilz, in Prussian Silesia, in 1809. His Father, 
Marcus Jacob Loewe, was Chief Rabbi of Rosenberg. He studied under those great blas- 
ters. Rabbi Mordechai Benedikt or Banet and Rabbi Moshe Sofer, at Nicolsburg- and Press- 
burg, taking his theological diploma as Chief Rabbi at the lattef College and his secular 
degree at the University of Berlin, where he heard Philosophy and Humaniora under 
Schleierinacher, Steffens, Neander and Hengstenberg. A desire to increase his knowledge 
of Oriental languages induced him, in 1836, to leave Berlin for London, where, soon after 
his arrival, he was presented by the Secretary of the Royal Society to the Duke of Sussex 
and to the Earl of Munster, a son of George IV., in both of whom he found warm patrons. 
At Westminster, Oxford, Cambridge and Paris, he was able to prosecute his studies with 
great success, owing to the introductions of the Duke, which always procured him unlimi- 
ted access to the various libraries. His intercourse with such men as Dr. John Gilchrist, 
the great Hindostanee Scholar, Garcin de Tassy, and other Orientalists of renown, led to 
his admission to the Asiatic Societies of Paris and London — his sponsor at the latter 
being Sir Alexander Johnstone, a former Governor of India. Under the auspices of his 
Royal patrons, as well as of the Duke of Northumberland and Admiral Sir Sydney Smith, 
he travelled in the years 1837 — 8—9 in Egypt, Nabia, Ethiopia, Syria, Palestine, Turkey, 
Asia Minor and Greece, where he acquired the Arabic, ('-optic, Nubian Turkish and Cir- 
cassian languages. In Djouni, or the Tower of Lebanon near Zidon, he was the guest for 
several days of Lady Hester Stanhope, the niece of William Pitt, and his published letters 
contain important infoi'mation concerning this often misunderstood lady. In Eyn Zetoun, 
near Safed, he was cruelly tortured and robbed by the Druzes, losing both money, arms 
and his collected literary treasures and he was compelled to continue his journey through 
Palestine in the garb of a Bedawee. On his return from the East, he studied for 8 months 
in the Vatican, under the protection of Cardinals Mezzofanti, Angelo Mai and Lambru- 
schini. It was in Rome that he first met the late Sir Moses Montefiore, whom he subse- 
quently accompanied no less than 5 times to the Holy Land, twice to St. Petersburgh, 
twice to Constantinople, to Eoumania and to Rome. He was afterwards appointed Oriental 
Linguist to the Duke ot Sussex, Examiner for Oriental Languages to the Royal College of 
Preceptors, Principal of Jews College and of Judith, Ladj^ Montefiore Theological College 
at Ramsgate. In his capacity of Literary Executor to Sir Moses, he published the Diaries 
containing the authentic narratives of the Eastern pilgrimages of the great Philanthropist, 
whom he survived only a short time. He has left behind him a vast collection of note- 
books and studies, and a systematic course of publication will be pursued in connection 

with them. In the meantime, such of his work as is the immediate result of his resear- 
ches in the course of his travels in the East may be classified under the following heads: 
As regards the geography of Palestine, our knowledge of its descriptive, statistical 
and ethnological branches is considerably augmented in the first instance by his „Letters 
from the East" originally published in German in the „Al]gemeine Zeitung des Juden- 
thums", which contain many descriptions of places and institutions, customs and characte- 
ristics of Palestine, which have been little dealt with in other books of travel. His Sta- 
tistics of the Holy Land contained in tabular statements, are works of patient personal 
enquiry, and embrace the exact geographical location of villages and towns, as well as 
the fullest information respecting Agriculture in the past and its possibilities in the future, 
Avhilst his stay amongst the Samaritans and Caraites, as fully narrated in his Three Lec- 
tures constitute an important addition to the scant reports on this generally inaccessible 

His travels in Egypt have been productive of highly important work in the field 
of Hieroglyphics. He made translations of the inscriptions on the obelisk in the „Atmedan" 
for Sultan Mahmoud, and his note-books contain numerous drawings and translations of 
hieroglyphical inscriptions on the best as well as the least known Temples and monuments 
along the Nile, whilst his „ Origin of the Egyptian Language" well-known to students 
conclusively proves its derivation from the Hebrew. 

From a numismatical and bibliographical point of view, his travels in Palestine have 
yielded him a rich harvest in valuable coins and manuscripts — notably amongst the latter 
a ..Moreh Nebuchim" copied from one of Ibn Tibbons own copies, and a Fifteenth Cen- 
tury Bible written in the style of the Farkhi Bible at Damascus. He had. moreover, an 
opportunity of examining the latter at length and securing a detailed statement of its 
contents. His Numismatic Cabinet contains specimens of Shekalim and other Oriental coins 
in great variety, the British Museum having recently acquired one of them, a unique Cufic 
gold coin of great age. Finally, during his stay in Nubia and in the Caucasus, he com- 
piled a Nubian Grammar — the first ever published — and a Circassian, Turkish and 
English Dictionary. His diaries, extending over a period of half a century altogether abound 
in valuable information concerning Palestine in particular and the East in o-eneral. He 
also published translations of the „Matteh Dan" and „Efes Dammim", as well as a number 
of discourses and papers read before learned Societies. 

He married in 1844, Emma, the eldest daughter of Salomon Silberstein, a merchant 
of Breslau, Silesia, (who was the first to manufacture sugar from beet in Germany), by 
whom he had six sons and four daughters. 

Soon after the death of Sir Moses Montefiore at Ramsgate, he removed to London 
with the intention of completing and publishing many important studies which he had al- 
ready begun, but he died, after a short illness, in the strength and vigour of life in his 
eightieth year.

The following is from Pettigrews ,,Bibliotheca Sussexiana" p. 180. 
„This is an exceedingly beautiful edition and was executed with new hebrew 
types to which the points were affixed. The Atthias Edition of 1667 has formed 
the basis of this edition. The Editor states, that he himself examined each page 
three times, and that he employed a learned jew to correct the press. There is 
a very learned preface in which the Editor takes a review of preceding editions, 
and states wherein he has altered and amended and adds the judgment of the 
divines of Leyden and Franeker and that of Leydekker, Braun, Jleyer, Gurtlerius, 
Rhenferdius and Reland on his work. The argument of the chapters is placed in 
the margin in Latin. The final Massorah is at the end of the books, accompanied 
by a Latin interpretation; the name of the books, both in Hebrew and in Latin, 
and the number of the chapters, are expressed at the head of each page. The 
numerals are placed to the verses, and the divisions noted, which renders it the 
most convenient Hebrew Bible for reference. At the end of the second Book of 
(Chronicles, the principal variations of the Bomberg, Plantin, Athias and other 
editions, as observed by Van der Hooght, are added and occupy 22 leaves. Dr. 
Adam Clarke speaks highly of this edition. He styles it ,.an excellent work" . . 
This Work may be prononnced the most elegant and perfect Bible ever yet pub- 
lished on the Masoretic Plan." 

It has a double title-page; one engraved, the other printed. The type is large, 
distinct and bold ; and the finals are generally from two to three-eighths of an inch 
in length. He who possesses a copy of this edition need scarcely wish for another 
for private use."

The Author flourished in Spain about the year 1368. His death by burning, 
according to the Sefer Juchasin, was brought about by Isaac Kanpanton in the 
following manner. A contract of marriage was being read at a Council of Eabbis 
and the date ,,anno mundi" was mentioned. Saneh exclaimed that „the World had 
not been created, whereat Kanpanton called out why does the Bush (Saneh) not 
burn?" And he was thereupon consigned to the flames. 

This volume Avas originally in the Library of Moses Mendelssohn and bears his 
signature which is vouched for by the well-known Town Councillor of Berlin 
David Friedlander in a few lines on the fly leaf to that eifect. It was presented 
by D. F. to Dr. Loewe.

rt31p''bn ISD- This is the book referred to by Professor Eohling in connection 
with the notorious „Tisza Eszlar Mystery" in Hungary. In a letter to the „Daily 
Telegraph" of 12 July 1883, Dr. Lo.ewe, after disposing of the charge of ritual 
murder brought against the Jews by Prof. Rohling in consequence of his false 
interpretation of the passage contained on page 156 a, further explains that with 
a view of encouraging industry in the Holy Land, Sir Moses Monteflore had 
presented a printing press to Israel Bak. The latter in token of gratitude refers 
to the gift on all books printed by him, viz : 

♦ D^Dna voja nnotr: nniiTi ^"^^ nre^isJiD n^a m^t2 mein t!?3Da hv 

But this was maliciously construed by Eohling to mean „under the auspices of 
Sii- Moses Monteflore" and used by him in support of his accusations.

"With MS lines of presentation from D. F. to Dr. Loewe who on the 26. Dec. 
1834 wrote the following obituary notice on the fly-sheet. 

„Von den immer seltener unter uns werdenden lebenden Zeugen aus jener 
Zeit, in der sich im vorigen Jahrhundert die Anfaenge der neuern deutschen 
Literatur und zwar zuerst in Berlin regten, ist wieder ein hoechst achtbarer 
aus unserer Mitte geschieden. Herr Stadtrath David Friedlaender, geboren zu 
Danzig in Preussen am 6. December 1750, ein Schueler und Freund Mendels- 
sohns und als solcher sowie durch seine eigene Schriften, auch mit Lessing, 
Nicolai, Eammler, Engel, Jerusalem, Spalding und Teller auf das Naheste be- 
freundet, ist gestern frueh nach kurzer Kraenklichkeit mit Tode abgegangen. 
Nachdem er seit mehreren Jahren dem Geschaeftsleben und der eigenen literari- 
schen Wirksamkeit ganz entsagt hatte, lebte er, abwechselnd hier oder in Char- 
lottenburg, der Unterhaltung mit den Schriften seiner aelteren, und denErzaeh- 
lungen an seine juengeren Frennde, die ihm mit fuehlbarer Bewegung zuhoerten, 
wenn der Greis noch voll jugendlicher Waerme jene Zeit ihnen darstellte, von 
der kein Mitlebender mehr ihnen ein so beredtes Zeugniss, wie er, ablegen konnte. 
Seine hinterlassene Briefsammlung und seine Bibliothek ueberhaupt, der wir 
bereits die von einem Enkel des Verstorbenen besorgte Herausgabe der Ur- 
schrift von Friedrich's des Grossen Anti-Machiavell verdankten, durfte manchen 
interessanten Aufschluss zur Geschichte der deutschen Literatur gewaehren."

\f2ii hH'ilV'i ni'in'' ■ followed by a blank page. The copy in the British 
Museum is similar in size, type and paper, but without the blank page; 
in its place there are additions by Josef ben Shelomo ben Virga. It is there- 
fore evident that this No. 362 is an earlier edition than that in the British Museum. 
In the introduction to his Edition Dr. M. Wiener of Hanover (1855) refers to 
this blank page and to the reference to Sultan Solimon and in agreement with 
Zedner considers it a Constantinople Edition of about 5310 = 1550. It would 
thus prove to be an editio princeps. 

The type is moreover exactly similar to that of the Sefer Juchasin (N° 364) 
which is also a Constantinople edition of that period.

Cruikshank. In the 2""* Volume under the heading of English Bibles, p. 311 is

Aegypten. By Prince Pueckler — Muskau. With illustrations. Berlin 1846. 

On page 220, the Prince gives an account of some interpretations of hiero- 
glyphic inscriptions by ChampoUion and Dr. Loewe of which the following is a 
translation ; — "During my enforced stay in Cairo (on account of a sprained foot) 
I received many visits from friends amongst whom was also Dr. Loewe .... He 
is a wonderful man, a genius of languages, and it was very interesting to see 
how he read, as fluently as if he were reading a newspaper, the copies of hiero- 
glyphical inscriptions which Herr von Kronstrand had taken by means of damp 
paper and brought with him from Thebes. At first I was not inclined to be- 
lieve him and I made up my mind to put him to the test. I had in my posses- 
sion a bronze figure entirely covered with hieroglyphics with a little history of its 
own. When ChampoUion came to Egypt it was given to him to decipher by 
the then owner and he readily gave an interpretation. Shortly afterwards the 
figure fell into other hands and found a home in Cairo. 

Now when ChampoUion, after a long stay in Upper Egypt and Nubia, returned 
to Cairo, the new owner also asked him to decipher the inscription on the long 
forgotten Isis. The learned Egyptiologist very kindly complied with the request 
— but strange to say — on this occasion the text differed very much from his for- 
mer interpretations, at which the owner laughed heartily, but without reason, 
for ChampoUion arrived in Egypt as a student and returned as a Master. 

Now as Dr. Loewe could not possibly have known anything about the two 
diiferent texts and as I, on purchasing the figure, had also obtained Champollions 
two interpretations, I hastened to ask him for his explanation of the hierogly- 
phics. My astonishment may well he imagined when — instead of hearing a 
third explanation as I had quite anticipated— Dr. Loewe read off almost word for word 
Champollions second text, and that without any hesitation and in very few mi- 
nutes. Consequently I felt great respect for and confidence in the talents of 
our amiable friend. In his opinion, the old Egyptian is only a corrupted off- 

— 37 — 

spring of the venerable Hebrew and his long studies of the Semitic languages 
have easily enabled him, building as it were upon Champollion, to find his way 
in the labyrinth of Hieroglyphics which will soon be easily accesible to all.

Beschrieben von 


Im Nachlasse des vor ftinf Jaliren in London verstorbenen Dr. L. Loewe, lang- 
jahrigen Freundes und Reisegefahrten Sir Moses Monte fi ore's befindet sich eine kleine 
Sammlung liebraischer und arabiscber Hss., welche der erstgenannte auf seinen Reisen im 
Oriente gesammelt hatte. Icb lasse hier ein kurzes Verzeicbniss derselben folgen. 

I. Reich illuminirte Bibel auf Pergament, durcbweg vocalisirt, die Reihenfolge der 
einzelnen Bticher ist : Pentateuch, Propheten, Chronik, Psalmen, lob, Spriiche, Ruth, Hohe- 
lied, Prediger, Klagelied, Esther, Daniel, Esra, Nehemia. Beigegeben sind grosse und 
kleine Massora, erstere in Diamantschrift und in kunstvoU verschlungenen Figuren an den 
Randern. Viele Blatter haben mit Gold ausgemalte Einfassungen. Hinter dem Pentateuch 
stehen die Lesarten von Ben Ascher und ben Naftali zum Pentateuch und zu Josua. An 
die Bticher der Konige schliessen sich die Lesarten der Maarbae und Madinchae zu den 
Propheten, am Ende stehen widerum die Lesarten von B. A. und B. N. zu den Hagiogra- 
phen. In der folgenden Schlussnotiz des Schreibers sind sammtliche Personen- und Orts- 
nanaen leider ausradirt. Sie lautet:

die im B'''711Jli1 Bt^) lit- N- § 50 erwahnte Hs. des Werkes unser Codex ist, diirfte somit 
ausser Zweifel sein. Das Werk ist iibrigens gedruckt (Wilna 1873, Gebr. Romm), was 
aber weder den Herausgebern von Michael's Qvpin 11K' noch Benjacob bekannt war. 

Papier, 343 Bll., 4^. An den ersten 4 Bll. sind die oberen Ecken bis in den Text 
zerstort. Deutliches spanisches Cursiv.

XVI. Vollstandiges Exemplar des Moreh Nebucbim, enthaltend den arabiscben 
Text mit daneben gescbriebener bebr. Ueberzetzung des Ibn Tibbon. Der auf der ausseren 
Columne geschriebene arab. Text hat etwas grossere Scbrift, als der bebraische. obwobl beide 
offenbar von derselben Hand gescbrieben sind. Der Schreiber batte den arabiscben Text 
auf dem Vorsatzblatte angefangen, bracb aber nach 3 (Halb-) Zeilen ab und begann in 
etwas langeren Zeilen auf fol. 3", weil er sowobl des Verfassers, als auch des Uebersetzers 
Vorrede vergessen batte. Beide sind fol. 1-— 2™ nacbgeholt. Der arabiscbe Text scbeint 
demnacb zuerst gescbrieben zu sein. Auf dem Vorsatzblatte stebt recbts neben den oben- 
erwahnten 3 arab. Zeilen der Vers ■'3J?'''nn in spaniscb-magbribiniscber Zierscbrift, offenbar 
als blosse Scbreibiibung. Tiefer unten auf der linken Seite stebt die folgende arabiscbe

umgekebrt: '^XlOti^. dabinter nocb 2 Stricbe, darunter wieder pTlJ^an und im Scbwanz

steben in grossen Buchstaben die Worte y'^i p syijt '^XID^S finiia^ HlXH- Das Blatt 
bat friiber zum Bande selbst gebort und ist nur auf die Einbanddecke geklebt worden.

(bebr.) lautet: '^''IXS (mi3 2Tti^n''l)i welches dem textlichen '^iKpSxi (Munk J fol. 5^° Z.

selbst revidirt und niit den angefiihrten Aumerkungen versehen worden war. Uebrigens 
hat sich der Abschreiber vielfach geirrt. aber sein Werk spatei- sorgfaltig verglichen und 
verbessert. So hat er, den grossten Theil von I, 25 an c. 3 angeschlossen, aber dem Irr- 
thum rechtzeitig gemerkt und in der 2 ten Columne verbessert. Vergessene Stellen sind 
sorgsam am Rande uachgetragen. Die HS., die Munk tur seine Ausgabe iibrigens nicht 
beniitzt hat, ist sehr correct, indessen sind x, 1 und ^ gelegentlich als Vocalbuchstaben 
gebracht, auch ist die Verwechselung von {< und n besonders hiiuiig. In einem Falle I,

Mss. Bible at Chicago. 

With reference to the Manuscript Bible described by Dr. Hirschfeld in the foregoing 
Paper sub N". 1, it will not be out of place here to reproduce an article sent by a cor- 
respondent in Chicago to the „Jewish World" of London and published by the latter in 
their Issue of 16. June 1893. 

"A correspondent at Chicago favors us with the following description of a manuscript 
Bible now being exhibited in this city, from the library of the late Dr. Louis Loewe, 
Oriental linguist to the Duke of Sussex, Private Foreign Secretary to the late Sir Moses 
Monteiiore, Bart., and author of many works on Orientalia, Numismatics and Lexicography. 
In Dr. Loewe's own rough catalague of his collections this Bible is referred to as follows : ~ 

"Bible brought from Constantinople, written in the year 5256—1496, most beautifully 

— 67 — 

illuminated. This Bible is written in exactly the same style as that of the Farkhi in Da^ 
mascus, valued at 1,000 guineas, the value of which consists in its being copied from the 
celebrated Bible quoted by Maimonides as having existed in Cairo". 

This catalogue entry and a Hebrew and Turkish inscription on the front page are 
all we possess in Dr. Loewe's own handwriting on the subject of this MS., but it should 
be borne in mind that he had the opportunity of examining at his leisure the unique Farkhi 
Bible in the library of Raphael Farkhi at Damascus, in the year 1837, and in his -'Me-, 
moires of Sir Moses and Lady Montefiore" there is an account of his interview with Lady 
Hester Stanhope, at Djouni, or "Tower of Lebanon," near Zidon, in the Holy Land, on 
which occasion he gave her a full description of it. Consequently, he may be regarded 
as fully competent to judge in how far the Bible which he himself acquired at Constanti- 
nople, compared with the Damascus copy. 

Moreover, the great esteem in which this well-known oriental scholar and traveller 
in the East was held, and the gratitude which the Jews owed him for his life-long de- 
votion to the cause of his persecuted brethren, fully explain the opportunities which were 
gladly afforded him for inspecting or acquiring valuable MSS., and obtaining information 
concerning them. The Bible now exhibited is bound in tortoise-shell, with silver clasps, 
hinges and ornamentations. The back is studded with silver nails forming a verse from 
the Psalms. Its size is 73/^ins. by 51/21118. by 21/21118., and it contains 493 leaves. The 
writing is very similar to that of the celebrated scribe, Elisha Gresqas, and probably 
emanates from one of his family, as it is well-known that characteristics in the handwriting 
of professional scribes are often to be recognised in the calligraphy of their descendants. 
The text which has the diacritical and musical accents is In double colums, except in such 
places as require a different style in synagogue scrolls, for instance, in the various metri- 
cal portions of the Pentateuch, where the line is subdivided in thirds. The chapters and 
verses are separated, but there is no difference in the size of the commencing letter of 
each book. This absence of any distinguishing initial letter is generally regarded as a 
proof of antiquity (vide Pittigrew's Catalogue of the MSS. of the Duke of Sussex . It 
contains in the margins the Massora Gedola and Massora Ketana, the Keri and Ketib, the 
changes of letters and words, the large and small letters, the codices of Ben Asher and 
Ben Naphtali and other grammatical notes. The order of the books is a peculiar one and 
is as follows ; — The Pentateuch, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah and 
Ezekiel, the twelve minor prohpets, and then Chronicles, Psalms Job, Proverbs, Ruth, Song 
of Songs, Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, Esther, Daniel, Ezra and Nehemiah. The illuminations 
on many pages in gold, red and blue, and the margins of every page throughout the book 
have every variety of fanciful form, although chiefly flowers and geometrical devices, the 
words forming these beautiful designs being minute, but distinctly legible. The gold is laid 
on very thickly and still retains its original brightness; indeed the entire manuscript is 
in a magniflcient state of preservation. On the last page it is stated that the scribe com- 
pleted the writing on Tuesday, the 10th Tamuz, 5256 (=1496), but unfortunately his name 
as well as that of the individual for whom the Bible was written, and the place of his 
residence have all been erased by chemical means. Whether this was the wanton act of 
idle hands or was done with some good reason, it is of course, impossible to say. but it 
is not improbable that in earlier times when cruelty and persecution were rampant, it was 

— 68 — 

thought desirable to conceal the identity of the owiier or writer. There is also some 
ground for this assumption in the two last words which follow the date and signify „May 
He speedily bring deliverance." For whilst we frequently And some sentiment or blessing 
added to descriptions of names or place's, it is generally of a pleasing character, such as 
"May his light shine" or "May it soon be rebuilt," but in times and places of persecution 
a^ spirit of sadness would pervade one's every act, an in this case, the writer's surroun- 
dings were very probably of a depressing character and caused him to give expression to 
his hopes in the words refered to. 

A literal translation is here appended of the Hebrew inscription written by Dr. Loewe 
on the front page: — 

"I have always placed the Lord before me." My lips overflow in grateful praise to 
to the Creator of all for having favored His servant with this book, which I have bought 
for current money at the time when I was with Sir Moses Montefiore in Constantinople 
for the purpose of clearing our Israelitish brethren dwelling in Damascus and Ehodes from 
the malicious charges brought against them by the inhabitants of those towns. May these, 
my words, be an everlasting memorial, and bear witness before the whole world that the 
Lord God of Israel has dealt graciously with us and with His people, and delivered us 
from the hand of our enemies and brought forth our vindication as clear as the light of day. 

These are the words of Eliezer, the son of Mordechai, Chief Rabbi of Zulz, in Prus- 
sia, now residing in London, England. 

And I have written these lines on the day when the Sultan granted us our request. 
Here in Constantinole (Friday) the portion of the week Lech Lechu, 5601, 6th November, 
1840, 1256 of the Hedgira, in the house of Abraham Camondo. 

(Signed) L. Loewe.
